Gongyao Wang obtained his Ph.D. degree from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, TN, USA in 05/01-12/06, his M.E. from Shanghai Jiao Tong University, Shanghai, China in 09/93-04/96, and his B.E. from Shanghai Jiao Tong University, Shanghai, China, in 09/89-07/93, all in materials science and engineering. He worked as a Supervisor of Mechanical Testing Lab, The University of Tennessee, Knoxville, TN, USA, from 01/2007 till present. He studied mechanisms of fatigue and fracture behavior of bulk metallic glasses (BMGs) and their composites, conducted research on corrosion fatigue of BMGs and their mechanisms, developed new aluminide-strengthened ferritic superalloys for power-generating turbine applications and their creep behavior, fabricated and characterized monolithic BMGs, such as Zr-based, Cu-based, Fe-based, and Ca-based BMGs, conducted low-cycle fatigue, fracture-toughness, and fatigue-crack-growth-rate experiments on heat-resistant alloys at different temperature, performed fracture characterizations, studied deformation and fracture mechanics, theoretically-modeled fatigue behavior, and predicted fatigue lifetimes of these alloys. He was a Reviewer for Physics Letters A, Journal of Alloys and Compounds, Materials Science and Engineering A, Surface and Coatings Technology from 10 till present, Reviewer for Journal of Materials Science (09-present), a Reviewer and Key Reader for Metallurgical and Materials Transactions A (09-present), a Reviewer for Advanced Engineering Materials (08-present), a Member of Mechanical Behavior of Materials Committee of The Minerals, Metals, and Materials Society (08-present), a Reviewer for International Journal of Fatigue (06-present), and a Membership Holder of The Minerals, Metals, and Materials Society (02-present). Wang authored or coauthored more than 70 papers and one book chapter.
